Monday Morning-Coffee Talk

Another Monday...I wish I could like Mondays 
but I just don't...maybe one day...

I apologize for my absence last week, life just got in the way. For 
today's post I thought we could have a a little coffee talk. Truth be told,
 I saw "Coffee Talk" over at Jenn's blog and thought that is 
an awesome blog post idea.

Let's say we were having coffee this morning, these
are the things we would chat about...

~This is Us, the tv show, I'm just not that into it anymore.
I had high hopes for this season and have been disappointed.
I can honestly say that I don't think I will be watching anymore.
In general, I have been trying to watch less tv.

~I did get back into The Walking Dead. Another show, which I think
at times, is very boring. I didn’t even finish last season but 
I know what happened, thanks to the spoilers all over the interwebs. 
Personally, I think they have too many episodes and many of 
them are just filler ones which I find really boring.

~The other show I have been watching is Outlander!! Oh, I love I love
this show. I’m also reading the books. I did read the fourth book, Drums of Autumn, 
but I cannot really remember what it was about, so I’m reading it again. 
I thought I had read the whole book but for the life of me,
 I cannot remember how it ended. How does that happen? 
I can say that I’m liking the book 
better this time so that is good, right??

~What the heck is up with Instagram?? I do not like the new
 algorithm at all. I’m constantly missing posts and why do I have so
 many sponsored posts in my feed??  So annoying!! 
Insta is my favorite social media platform and I wish they would
 go back to the old algorithm, this new one sucks. 
Ugh, I miss the old days of IG.

~So, technically it is the fall season but what is up with
 the 70 degrees weather? I know I shouldn’t complain 
but I have yet to break out my sweaters and scarves and it’s 
almost November! That is unacceptable to me. Ha! 
I love my cool crisp weather.  My uggs are dying to 
be taken out of the box.   Hate all you want, 
I LOVE my uggs.

~Lastly, I love that we have Primark here in Boston
 but it drives me absolutely batty when they show things on
their Instagram, only for it NOT to be available in the United States. 
All the good stuff is only ever in Europe!! 
Guess, I need to go back to London!!

So now, tell me what is on your mind??
Let me know, I love hearing from you!!
Best, Marie

  1. OK, incredibly great minds think alike, I did a Coffee Talk today too because of Jenn's blog!!! You are so cute and sweet!! Oh tally ho, lol, you need another trip to Cheery England!!! Nope and a big what's up to Mother Nature..give us sweater water and all the fall Fells, I think it's finally here in Indiana, so I hope tit arrives in Boston too!!! LOVE ya girl and glad you're back!! Have a great week!

  2. This season of This is Us has been really slow right? I am also two episodes behind so I don't know if it gets going yet. I've heard great things about Primark but that is so annoying about not stocking all the items! Girl you are preaching, the new Instagram is so terrible I see the same 3 people and that is it. Would love to go back to the days of the newest feed. FB at least lets you change it back to that way if you want. I hope you have a great Monday xoxoxo

  3. Yes! I hate that there are so many sponsored posts & that they're all out of order now on Instagram. If it ain't broke, don't fix it! I haven't watched TV other than Netflix in quite awhile but This Is Us & TWD were both shows I used to watch. I was so over TWD over the past few seasons.

  4. i'm on the fence about watching This is Us...everyone tells me that you cry whenever you watch it and i dont want to do that!

  5. love me some coffee talk. reminds me i need to do another one again soon :) i am with the million other users who friggen hate IG right now. i mean i clearly wont stop posting but it makes me sad. this is us is definitely a bit different this season but i'm curious so i'm sticking with it. i really should follow your lead and watch less tv though!

  6. Totally agree with you about Instagram. I miss so many posts, I wish it would go back to how it was too. It was warm on Saturday here too -- I am so ready for the fall temperatures to stay! Happy Monday!

  7. Girlllllll we can totally hate on Instagram, I'm beyond over it! This algorithm is the worst, and it's brought engagement way down and I see the same people over and over. Ok rant over! This is Us has been really slow this season, but I'm totally invested in it. I'll let you know if anything major happens so you can catch up <3

  8. Love This is Us and Primark.. what a great store!

  9. I seriously hate how sponsored Instagram is becoming, and I always feel like I miss the posts from the people that I care about the most! And The Walking Dead is so action packed this season! I'm loving it!

  10. Girl... I love my uggs too! I watched one episode of This Is Us, I liked it.. but I kind of hate watching live tv... so we didn't stick with it. I've been DVRing Outlander though. I have only read the first book/watched the first season. I'm ready to dive into book/season 2, and then hit the third book and DVR hard. :) Somehow I was not following you on IG, fixed that! :) The weather here was fluctuating super heavily for weeks.. now I think we are mostly in the 60's and it's been great!! I hope it cools down and stays cool for you soon. Fall & Winter are my favorite. Honestly, October-March are my favorite. So let's gooo! XO - Alexandra

  11. I am so frustrated with Instagram too - what is the problem with just keeping things in order? Its fair... but I know its all about promotion to companies. So stupid. I miss SO MUCH now.

  12. Im still trying to jump on the This is us bandwagon! I haven't yet.

    Instagram truly annoys me sometimes which is why I routinely neglect it for days ...

  13. I must agree with you! This Is Us is just not what it was last year! If I miss it I'm like - meh ok. And another agreeing hand here when it comes to IG - geez it's a mess now. I get posts from three days prior instead of current ones - not cool at all. I'm over for the first time from Biana's blog. I hope your week is great - after Monday :) xo

  14. I am totally invested in This is Us, but I do feel this season isn't as good as the first. I think Chris is bored with it, he usually falls asleep while we are watching and doesn't bother asking me what he missed lol. Instagram is the only social media I check daily and I really hate that it has gone down hill lately. I see the same posts every time I open the app and way more sponsored crap than I used to. It makes me sad.

  15. I haven't cried while watching This is Us like last season. Every episode. I do like this season, but it isn't as good by far.

  16. I'm with ya on the Instagram algorithm. I thought I was going a little crazy but it's become annoying like Facebook. On to more positives thoughts..Primark sounds like an amazing place to shop at. Wish we had one in FL. Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

  17. I am wondering that the heck is up with Pinterest. The idea of following people is to see what they are pinning. Now I just use it for searching for recipes or how-to's.
